When i am inworld i use my Oculus rift so if i do not answer the chat it is because i cant see my keyboard. Try voice.
First time i really go deep inside a VR game. Well i got sick for a few times. But it works in the game because i suppose i would if i was trapped in a space station and moved around to much. It is a nice touch. Keep still in game to not get sick. It is a cool game and scary. Feeling of being there is nice.
So you can do a nice VR game without killing things. I like that.
Lost Angel. I still find places in SL that is nice and have a feeling. Walking around and found this great club. Have to return when there is something going on.
Visited the beach today and i am amazed. The mesh quality of things in Second life. And done right it is not very hard on the graphics card. Reducing lag. If it is done right.
I used my Oculus to inspect the nice work and it made it a very nice experience, blink, blink. ( Did you see that.)
Now we only need a new viewer and some some new shaders to play around with.
Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.
Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.
The thing we all have been looking for is finally out there. Linden labs Sansar. I have been checking it out for a while but now i can write about it and that is nice.
And so is Sansar. Nice.I have a Oculus so i can check out the experiances all the way. And i still say Sansar is nice. The graphics good. The update is good. Will be great if you want to do a simple game. And i suppose people will create new tools you can use to make buildning easy. As a user of AltspaceVR, sinespace, High Fidelity and now Sansar i just ask my self "will anybody ever use these products?"
It have a distinct feel of Blue Mars. You wait for the download and then come into a small space that look great and wonder why am i here? Is there any reason at all?
There will be some cool games i guess. But if i want to play a really cool game i have Steam.
At the moment i think it is a question about wait and see.
PS/ When i get out of Sansar i go back to my ordinary life at the Hypergrid and Second life. It is more fun! /DS
